School talk:Art and design
This School covers such a large area of knowledge from Fine Arts to Industrial Design that there should be a way of differentiating what resources you are looking though. I think that the old system of departments works well to separate these areas of knowledge but I'm not sure what the accepted system for the entire Wikiversity is. I think a single header page for "Art and Design" with the section "resources" will mix articles on cartooning with glass blowing and will not allow for the easiest access to the intended information sought. --Mishaneah 01:26, 19 August 2006 (UTC)
Creation of a "Fine Arts" Portal?
In keeping with the spirit of what Mishaneah stated above, I agree that the wealth of information implied with a school that's somehow supposed to encompass the whole of Art and Design is both intimidating and, in all honesty, unrealistic. There are many subdivisions of Art and Design, so many so that there's enough to start another portal. From what could be considered "Art" (fashion, photography, painting, film production, animation) to what could be considered "Design" (art direction, wood working, set design, urban planning, interior design, print advertisement), it would be much better for organizational purposes and I think the entire ethos of the subjects at hand to create another portal subdivision. How, exactly, does one go about doing this? +Bozaloshtsh 06:29, 30 August 2006 (UTC)
Keep the Arts and Design together
I have to disagree. Fine art and design, in the coming century of mass customisation, are increasingly going to bend together and mix. Wikipedia is an other proof of a collaborative project : I think art, design, craft, philosophy, politics are to be largely discussed. They are differences between arts and design but the proximity is extremely productive to my point of view. I personnaly have a background in both design and art and I definitely believe the essence of what is taught has to remain the same ; each students will have his/her own path of lives. The basic for Art or Design can sit on the same ideological grounds, as a critical constructive elements of society. Eventhough Wikipedia has a encyclopedic purpose (systematic disociation), i believe Wikiversity has a different mission : gather different activities and be flexible to allow creativity grow. I just started the New Media Arts Division, and I'm looking forward to have students interested in crossdisciplinary projects : dividing the school would just create a distance and disturb students ability to "navigate". --Cesarharada 01:22, 14 June 2007 (UTC)
I have done an edit to show how we could build a portal into the diverse fields within art and design. I agree that the boundaries are becoming unclear, but there are still a lot of concepts, methods and techniques special to each field. The Wikiversity is a plave where we have room for creating a matrix of information - so lats do it! Product designers need interaction design as do web designers and graphic designers and there is a structure here for sharing courses as long as we use the whole hierarchy Schools divisions sub divisions and departments. And if we dont agree on where a field fits in - just build it and link it on some where --TAOdesign 16:25, 16 October 2007 (UTC)
Where would photography fit in here?
- I think it could have its own school. --Remi0o 06:11, 30 December 2006 (UTC)
Under the Division of Performance Art, music is listed as subdivision/department. Since a school of Music and Dance exists, I think there should not be an overlap and the subdivision/department should be deleted.

Merger with Art and Design
- I agree! Go for it! May I suggest trying to keep as much of the suggested content of School:Art & Design as possible. --Marshallsumter (discuss • contribs) 00:11, 23 October 2013 (UTC)
- Perhaps we should keep the debate open a little longer.Leutha (discuss • contribs) 22:49, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
- Hi Pressajaja! Welcome to Wikiversity! One resource you can start with is Acting (Film and Stage). There's a category at the bottom of the page Category:Acting for more. Also, your local schools may have theatre groups you can join to try out for roles in their plays! --Marshallsumter (discuss • contribs) 23:34, 5 June 2018 (UTC)
